Normaal - Hoe word ik Normaal (1977, NL, levend) 
Thursday, October 8, 2020, 03:20 PM - Music, - NL, Nederlands
Er is iets echt mis met mijn geheugen.
De verjaardagen van mijn beste vrienden kan ik niet onthouden, maar de teksten van dit optreden kan ik na 40 jaar zo meezingen. Ik weet zelfs nog waar de radiostoringen zitten en hoe vaak ik wiediediew moet herhalen.
Ik ging hierin mee, denk ik, in een poging me van mijn hoogbegaafd imago te ontdoen. Later kwam Rubberen Robbie daarvoor in de plaats.
Verkeersinformatie kwam gewoon door het live-optreden heen. Daar werd op gereageerd. Wie ook reageerde op de file-meldingen was Wim T Schippers als Jacques Plafond in zijn programma Ronflonflon. Eveneens te beluisteren.

1977-10-04 (opgenomen op V&D Vendomatic cassette):
01 Daldeejen
02 D'n poot op 't gas
03 Noar 't Café
04 Doar baal ik van
05 Hard wie Kruppstahl
06 Verkeersinformatie
07 Geef ut toe
08 Kom es effe hier
09 Oh dearne
10 Alie
11 A-a-auw
12 Oerend hard

Presage(s) (1980, UK, new wave) 
Tuesday, October 6, 2020, 03:52 PM - Music, - UK, Personal, English
A sampler on the 4AD label.

I'm a sucker for covers.
For the Psychotik Tanks' Lets have a party, I liked it so much I did a cover of their version at the Debutistenfestival in the Roermond youth center S'61 (51.197252, 5.9894048), November 3rd 1984.
As equipment I used a Yamaha PortaSound PC-100, a Sinclair ZX-81 computer with a program that could modulate the save-tone (that was the only audio the ZX could produce), a microphone of an old Sharp tape recorder, the Akai GXC-46 cassette deck as booster for a Sonolor Plein Vent transistor radio that acted as an amplifier (boy, did that work) and some kind of guitar.
The radio was the same one I used for the static noise in Jah Wobble's Blueberry Hill.
The microphone was taped to my mouth but let loose halfway. Anyway, a lot of fun (for me, not sure about the audience).

Side one:
1 Psychotik Tanks - Security Idiots
2 The Last Dance - Malignant Love
3 C.V.O. - Sargasso Sea

Side two:
1 Psychotik Tanks - Let's Have A Party
2 Modern English - Home
3 Spasmodic Caress - Hit The Dead
4 Red Atkins - Hunk Of A Punk
